Manchester, Northern England, 1975. The claustrophobic and dysfunctional Khan family fights for survival. Sajid, the youngest Khan, struggles to cope with his father's tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition, and mistreatment from the bullies in the schoolyard. His father decides to pack him off to Mrs. Khan No 1 and family in the Punjab, the wife and daughters he had abandoned 30 years earlier. What is unfolds is a coming-of-age story of both 15-year-old Sajid and of his father, 60-year-old George Khan.
